Holcomb was Nelda's husband, Brom's father and Eragon's paternal grandfather.

History Edit

Holcomb grew up in Kuasta, a remote city near the Sea, far south of Carvahall. Kuasta was so isolated by the Spine that it became a peculiar place, full of strange customs and superstitions, so Holcomb probably was very superstitious, along with his family.

Family Edit

He and his family were illuminators and probably wealthy. When Holcomb became a man, he married Nelda and had a son named Brom.

Son Edit

When Brom was ten years old, he was presented to the eggs that the dragons had donated to the Dragon Riders. A dark blue dragon egg hatched for him and Brom named the female dragon Saphira.

Holcomb probably was very upset when his son left home for Ilirea (to become a Dragon Rider) and it is unknown if he ever saw him again.
